It is good to see a company making hard but needed changes. I hope that it will be successful for them. I know that it is hard on those being laid off, I hope that they will be able to find employment soon. The razor thin consumer market is a hard place to be and profit in as we have seen. Good luck Cisco!

Maybe this is good to Cisco to focus on its high profit segment. The impact from China seems great!


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments?
